We used a behavior based safety program within our P&G Pharmaceuticals R&D site in Norwich, NY. I headed up the program until I retired in 2002. At last count the site had gone over 12 years without a lost time accident. It can work in an R&D environment as long as you have a strong and committed R&D Manager and the resources to make it work.  I can offer up suggestions on how it worked if you wish.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Behavior Based Safety programs for R&D

Can anyone recommend any programs or consultants who have experience in promoting behavior based safety programs for R&D environments? I just don’t feel most of the “canned” programs will be well accepted in an R&D environment. My site is industry which is probably easier than academia but still challenging. Your thoughts or suggestions would be most welcome.
